Shopping...I just might be getting the hang of it!

Saturday, March 22, 2008

An enjoyable day again today.
Got all the laundry done bright and early, which was great as my youngest thought it would be a great idea if we went into Whyte Avenue and walked up and down the street window shopping and going out for lunch.
We had a great time, exploring the Avenue and all it holds. Bought myself a sweater and my daughter bought herself a very cute dress. I'm actually getting the hang of this shopping thing. I am actually enjoying walking into places and knowing that there is a possibility that something in the store will fit me now!
Bonus of all the walking around is that I burned 189 calories, woo hoo!
The sun was shining although it was rather cool outside. Just being able to walk outdoors again was such a nice experience. We are supposed to get some snow again tonight though.

I seem to have been spending a lot of time these past few blogs with walking around malls. But when you live in the climate we do and you want to go walking for exercise, you look for the most likely places to ensure that you can walk around for more than 15 minutes without freezing! Besides it's nice to look at things that one day you just might be able to buy because you actually fit into it! I love the dreaming, especially when I know that it will become an actuality. Thank you SP for all your help in making my dreams come true.

Have a wonderul evening, I know that I'm sure going to make it a good one.

    Wanda - I used to do mall walking too. Now I have my new treadmill so I don't even have to leave the comforts of home! I usually put on music or watch the news or something while I'm walking. I can't wait til the day that I can try on 'normal' sized clothing too! (((Hugs))) Marla

    I'm so happy for you... To actually see yourself in that outfit soon... How fun that must be... Dream on dream on... Oh and I love that you are so motivated that you look for places to walk and get out of that cold weather of yours... It won't be long now... Spring is here...
